MONTREAL, May 28, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian actress Emily Hampshire, in Cannes for the premiere of David Cronenberg's film Cosmopolis, dazzled in Birks jewellery for all her appearances at the prestigious film festival. Her presence at Cannes began on a high note with the presentation of the Birks Canadian Diamond on May 23, awarded to Emily Hampshire and her Cosmopolis co-star Sarah Gadon, for their talent and accomplishments as up-and-coming Canadian actresses. For the occasion, Emily wore a long-sleeve burnt orange silk gown by Stella McCartney, accessorized with pearl and diamond earrings and cocktail ring by Birks.

On May 24, Emily Hampshire attended the amfAR event at Hotel du Cap Eden Roc in Antibes. For the occasion she chose a beaded black halter neck gown by Stella McCartney as well as shoes by the designer, with diamond earrings and a diamond cocktail ring by Birks.

The next morning, Emily attended the photo call and press conference for David Cronenberg's movie Cosmopolis wearing a polished sixties look that consisted of a red cocktail dress by Edition by George Chakra, Pedro Garcia shoes, a large pearl and diamond necklace by Birks as well as pearl and diamond earrings by the jeweller.

That evening, Emily walked the red carpet for the premiere of Cosmopolis looking old- Hollywood glamourous in a spectacular open back black dress by Stella McCartney, punctuated by beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels earrings from Birks, as well as a diamond cocktail ring by the Canadian jeweller.

On May 25, Emily attended a photo shoot at Hotel Martinez wearing different looks, including a red and black body-con cocktail dress by Stella McCartney, accesorized with a diamond and platinum maple leaf brooch, Canadian diamond solitaire earrings and a diamond cocktail ring, worn while Emily was posing on the iconic Martinez rooftop. For another shot she was seen wearing a simple black cocktail dress with a diamond and coloured gemstone necklace by Birks, and finally with a ruby and diamond necklace and diamond ring by the jeweller. All shoes were by designer Stella McCartney.

That evening Emily Hampshire attended the red carpet premiere of Mud wearing a pink silk and white lace evening gown by Zuhair Murad and a Birks diamond lariat necklace, Canadian diamond solitaire earrings and a Canadian diamond band.
